I think he's an interesting character too. Well, at least in the HP saga. But I'm on overload with Tom Riddle in the CC fandom. They all go on about him as TR and don't seem to notice or care that he's done other things. It's such a shame really.
^ Yeah, it is a shame, actually. I'm glad I was able to see him in the Forsyte Saga and Hornblower (and snippets of LIACC and I downloaded that Little Britain episode ) because he acted very well in them.
The reason people go on about Tom Riddle is because the HP movies are worldwide and very popular, whereas the other ones aren't... some people are unable to see the programs he's been in.
